quick facts

 

 

Ovarian cancer is one of the most common in women

 

Approximately 70% of women with ovarian cancer have extensive disease at the time of diagnosis

 

If diagnosed at the localized stage, the 5-year survival rate is 94%;

Ovarian cancer occurs more often after menopause than before and incidence increases dramatically with age.

 

Women who have never had children or whose first pregnancy occurred after age 35 are more likely to develop ovarian cancer than those who have not.

 

Breast-feeding and taking birth control pills appear to reduce a woman's risk.

 

In general, the American Cancer Society recommends a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, while limiting the amount of saturated fats for prevention of ovarian cancer

 

Some women may inherit a mutation of a gene (BRCA1 or BRCA2) from either their mother or father that increases the risk of developing ovarian cancer as well as breast cancer. BRCA1 and BRCA2 are genes that normally suppress cell growth.

 

The rate at which women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer has been slowly falling over the past 20 years.

 

Family history can be a valuable indicator of higher risk for some women. One or more close relatives with ovarian cancer, or breast cancer at an early age could indicate an increase in your risk.
